Out of the Blue (1980): review- 9/10

Portrait of an adolescent girl whose father has recently returned from prison.

The film describes, with beauty, the girl's relationships with her mother, her father and peers, all of whom are variously selfish, immature or imbalanced.

She attempts to find release in punk and by wandering in the city.

Strong performances in a film which manages seriousness while avoiding portentousness.
